So after arriving in Beijing, we filmed a couple days out by the botanical gardens. I had some time and went to eat at the “BEST” Peking Duck restaurant in Beijing. It was located near the financial district in an area they call “Central Park”. Tell you the truth I was still fighting jet-lag so a lot was a blur. I actually forgot I filmed being there so I am glad I documented it LOL.
Afterwards we were off to a small town about 2hrs outside of Beijing called Lai Shui. The set we were using was just outside of town where they apparently film many “period” films of old China. I heard that Red Cliff was also filmed there. We stayed at the Sheng Shi Int’l Hotel which I enjoyed. The 6th floor had a spa and 24hr services which was great cause we filmed long days.
